The concept was put together by the wonderful make-up artist Rhiannon Salter (@rhiannonlouise_bride) and is “Inspired by effortlessly cool brides, embracing natural and earthy wedding vibes.” - We are obsessed!
The Laidback Location:
The Observatory in Swansea, on the beautiful coast of Southern Wales is owned and operated by Noah Redfern. The top of the tower has a gorgeous stained glass feature and the building has a uniquely styled interior. A cool and quirky venue right on the beach offering delicious food and delightful cocktails. The perfect venue for an effortlessly cool bride and the love of her life!
Wedding Shoot Inspiration and Styling:
Rhiannon wanted to create ‘The laidback Bride’, to empower women to turn away from “bridal traditions” and do their day, their way.
'This was a chance to bring together a likeminded team which spoke to the free spirited and minimalistic lovers. After such a tumultuous year, it was a chance to get together with other creatives to produce a project, we were all proud of.' and what a sensational project it was! Styling Inspired by much loved artist Stevie Nicks.
The Laidback Bohemian Bridal Outfit:
Showcasing the finest elegant collections in their boutique, White Orchid Bridal can’t wait to help you find your perfect dress. Isn't this stunning lace bridal gown they provided for the shoot just major boho goals. We are gushing over this whole bridal look.
Rebecca Anne Designs created the stunning bespoke fedoras for this shoot, a lovely additional boho touch to this bridal look, again also adding to the relaxed vibe of this styled shoot.
Boho Handmade Wedding Jewellery:
Carefully handmade boho, beach vibe jewellery by Rosie Jones, Salt Skin Jewellery is based in Swansea and created for lovers of the sea. Their jewellery can be specially made to order using selected semi precious stones and sterling silver.
Natural Glowing Bridal Hair & Make-Up:
Swansea based hair and makeup artist, Rhiannon Salter, specialises in natural glowing skin and textured bohemian hair styling, which was certainly achieved with this gorgeous bride! We love the effortless waves and minimal make-up, really bringing out Sasha's beautiful blue eyes.
Earthy Boho Inspired Wedding Flowers:
Eve Francesa Designs offers exquisite and bespoke floral designs tailored to your individual requirements. Eve created stunning neutral earthy toned florals for this shoot, adding dried florals for the ultimate boho twist and even created a dried flower crown for the bride.
Laidback Wedding Photography:
Katie Sweet is a Bristol based photographer, and loves capturing the natural and candid and takes a relaxed approach to make you feel as comfortable as possible on your special day.
I mean I did warn you about how gorgeous these images were!
